This is one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies.

We view these datapoints as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided.

The final category we scored is this nursing home's weakest category. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it a decent grade of C for our long-term care category. Our long-term care grade is typically used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided vaccination data.
